Harbour Hotel Radio show theme tune

Hi All,

Just wondered if anyone knows a link or where to get the theme tune of the radio 1 soap Harbour Hotel that was broadcast in the 80's

thanks.

Maybe email RTÉ and they may be able to help you.

Yup, it's not in the online archives. There are a couple of photos of the voice actors and writer but that's it.

Same here- I've spent a good 20 mins on this too- bah, I thought everything that ever was, was on the interweb these days.

Yup, I even trawled YouTube
My Mam used to listen to this every day it was on. During her teen years she worked in the Royal Marine Hotel in Dun Laoghaire and I think it reminded her of those days

Yeah perhaps i'll drop rte an email. I used to listen to it in my gran aunt's when i'd get a half day from school, and she'd cook a fantastic tasty dinner for me. For a woman in her late eighties at the time, that was some going.

Ahh they were great times

Memories of Missus Doyle and Shiny Shoes Bob Ellis! Yes tried to find it myself but no luck. I'd say an email to certain presenters may help. Ronan Collins comes to mind

Interesting list of RTÉ recordings here. I don't see Harbour Hotel on it anywhere.

Bear in mind that the theme tune to the Gay Byrne radio show was not an RTÉ tune, it's actually 'Tico's Tune', by 'Manuel & the Music of the Mountains', and that could be true of Harbour Hotel too.

The Gay Byrne Radio Show music. Listen to it from 15 seconds in

Tico's Tune is great.

Here's my article on that RTE Themes LP. Might be of interest.
